Summer in Pushkin
« on: August 01, 2006, 09:06:10 AM »
I posted this somewhere under another topic last year, but I think it may be more appropriate under this topic. This is the link to my online travelogue, which describes my experiences in Pushkin during the summer of 2005 (includes many photos of the town).

In regards to visiting Pushkin and St. Petersburg in general, I have a question (albeit probably a silly one).  I have been a Romanov devotee for years and have only begun to learn the language.

How functional in Russian does one have to be to safely travel there or is English spoken anywhere?  I am planning a trip to StPb next year and would like to know how proficient in the language i must be.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Good question. I am planning my first trip to Russia for next year. (Going to Maui this year). I am just starting to plan and would be interested in the must sees of a first trip to Russia. I didn't know where else to post this. I apologize if this is the wrong place.

How about on the "Travel to Russia" thread?  http://forum.alexanderpalace.org/index.php/topic,1901.msg219638.html#new

Do you plan on going to Pushkin?
